ARS- generalized lymphadenopathy only symptom?

Multiple Heterosexual encounters, unknown sexual history. Vaginal penetration, no condoms.

Currently I am expressing generalized lymphadenopathy, mostly armpits/groin with a burning sensation, now having lasted 2-3 weeks. I have no other symptoms.

Is it plausible, thou I read otherwise, for one to have lymphadenopathy generalized as the only ARS symptom?
I am scheduled for a test soon, and I am aware symptoms alone do not confirm or deny infection of HIV (etc).
I have read other posts by Dr. Hook, and more-so by Dr. Handsfield, that lymphadenopathy alone is not a symptom of HIV ARS infection. I have read elsewhere, it can be.

Probability of HIV infection statistics I've also read. Low, but not zero.

So, can generalized lymphadenopathy, (with the sensation of feeling hot in those areas), absent of other symptoms as of yet over the past 2-3 weeks, but a possible HIV ARS infection?

Thank you

If you were diagnosed with lymphadenopathy continue working with your doctor because no one here pays attention to symptoms. hiv doctors can't diagnose from symptoms so don't pay attention ot them and you shouldn't be wasting your time trying to do that.
Only a test can determine if you have hiv. A duo is conclusive after 4 weeks and any other after 12 so test at the appropriate time.
